Mushroom season is just beginning in the higher elevations and I love to forage for the elusive Morel Mushroom.
My husband Russ and I have learned to hunt above 3,000 feet as Russ has never met a poison oak plant that hasn’t found a way to his body. I am transformed when I enter the forest. It is the one place I seem to be able to let my mind relax and take in the sights and smells of the earth and tree’s.
I am fascinated with the look, shape and texture of morels. Everything about them suggests earthy and organic. I wanted to honor the morel by incorporating the texture of the mushroom into my nuno felt. I started with a circular shape and cut out a spiral pattern.
I used silk, merino wool and wool yarn to create the pattern.
Can be worn as a scarf or a wrap.
